Teaching TB in a game

Snakes and ladders is helping children in Andhra Pradesh learn vital health messages about TB and HIV.

TB Alert’s partner VMM, which manages the TAP project, developed a special version of the game for use in Children’s Clubs. Children who play the game move up the ladders when they make positive health choices and down the ladders when they do not. It’s a simple yet fun way of getting health messages across.

Children are given a copy of the game to take to their home or school – which they can use to teach others about TB-HIV and to reinforce the messages that they have learned.

The resource received a positive review in The Hindu, one of India’s most popular newspapers. Read the review on The Hindu website.
